DigitalOcean Data Centers (With addresses)

DigitalOcean has 13 data centre locations located across 8 regions. A region is a geolocation with more than one data centre, for example, new york has 3 datacenters, NYC1 to NYC3.

Some of DigitalOceans older regions have limited capacity and thus creating new resources is disabled for customers who don't have existing resources in those data centres (AMS2, NYC2, SFO1, and SFO2).

Where are DigitalOcean Data Centers Located?

Digitalocean is not public with their data centre locations, like many providers however using public peering and public data we are going to best guess locations.

Amsterdam - Netherlands - Europe

Ams1 - Unknown

Ams1 was DigitalOceans first European data centre, we can't find anything out about it, it all but disappeared from DigitalOcean

Ams2 - Equinix AM5

Schepenbergweg 42, Amsterdam, nl, 1105 AT

We know AMS2 released in 2013 was based in a Telecity facility based on the press release. TelecityGroup was acquired by Equinix in 2016. Based on this we guess the data centre is located at Equinix AM5.

Ams3 - Equinix

Released in 2014

DigitalOcean didn't publicly list where AMS3 is, we expect AMS3 will be another Equinix facility, there are 7 Equinix Data centres locations in Amsterdam.

New York - USA

Thanks to Matt Cowley a DigitalOcean employee's comment on the DigitalOcean community the New York locations are easily found.

Interxion has lots of data centre buildings in Frankfurt and we were unable to find any information about which one it would be. However, we did find this tweet from DigitalOcean and using some Google Maps viewing we found it to be FRA10.
